Hi Brian,

I have a couple old Eko acoustics myself, and yours is an intruiguing question. I don't think the scale lengths on the Tele and a dread are the same, but I could be wrong...have you measured? It would be pretty cool if you could make it work, might have to add a big shim to boost the neck into proper distance alignment with the bridge, also, the Eko's generally have the bolt-on neck cut out for the soundhole radius, like a classical guitar, which might entail the shim or neck extension block being as much as couple inches long....the frets of course need to be the same distance from the bridge. Please post back if you attempt it.
